Autumnal Floral Home styling

I don’t know about you but I love Autumn! The warm days and cooler nights, Jumpers and blankets and leaves crunching under foot. And pumpkins, I love pumpkins! They make a wonderful addition to your autumn décor and are not just for the doorstep!


Here are some of our autumnal pumpkin suggestions, just for you!


  1. Paint them!

Orange not your colour? Then get your most beautiful chalk pain out and paint that pumpkin! You can go for a full colour change, or just paint your house number for a seasonal warm welcome. We have been known to spray paint ours black, rose gold and copper!


  1. Plant them!

This year you will find our succulent pumpkin planters on our website, but if you want to give it a go at home here’s how

-find the best size gourd for your plant (think of depth as well as width)

--using the top of the plant pot (take you plant our first) roughly trace the diameter you need to cut out of your pumpkin

-This part can take a while! Being careful not to pierce the bottom of your chosen gourd, keep carving around your plant pot mark until you can pull or scoop the centre out.

- remove all seeds and flesh in the way of your plant fitting in

-pop you plant in and cover the edges with moss


We always suggest popping these on a saucer or platter as they can get a little sappy! These can last up to three weeks before your gourd looses its shape.


3.Make a dining table centre piece.

Using all your beautiful accessories, platers, candles or lanterns you can make a stunning and seasonal table centre. Choose a variety of sizes of the same colour gourd for real impact. Our suggestion is the beautiful Baby Boo! This gorgeous white/cream pumpkin is our favourite!


  1. Make a pumpkin floral display!

We have so much fun making these! For added impact we paint our pumpkins after hollowing them out.

-use some cellophane/plastic bag to cover the cavity if using floral foam or to go foam free use a vase or jam jar.

-Pick a complimentary display of flowers and foliage to create a one of a kind floral pumpkin.


We hope you all love pumpkins as much as we do! But for something a little different our September top floral picks are

-Hydrangeas! Pick a multi toned bloom for drying at home

-Gladiolus. So may colours to choose from.

-Dahlias. There are some amazing local growers, or pop in to see our British grown blooms.

Until next time,
